LG Display developed the world's first 88" 8K OLED display

LG Display announced that it has developed the world's first 88-inch 8K (7680x4320) OLED display. LGD will demonstrate this at CES 2018 next week and it seems as if it aims to launch this as a product soon as it says this will expand its OLED product portfolio.

A couple of weeks ago it was reported that LGD indeed aims to focus on larger-area OLED TVs going forward. LG's current 77" OLEDs start at $9,999 (for the OLEDG7 model), and we can expect a 88" OLED to be much more expensive (a 88" TV has a 30% larger area than a 77", but yields will be lower and of course this is a high premium TV size).
